Happy Monday y'all! We hope you are focusing on your physical and mental health during these stressful times.
Today we are spotlighting a commonly overlooked ingredient in our Immunity Powder:
Astragalus is an adaptogenic herb that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for over 2,000 years. Adaptogens help the body adapt to stressors, so adding this to your supplement regimen can benefit your body in numerous ways:
· May help prevent seasonal colds and respiratory illnesses by boosting your immune system.
· May improve heart health. According to a clinical study, “patients with heart failure were given 2.25 grams of astragalus twice daily for two weeks, along with conventional treatment. They experienced greater improvements in heart function compared to those receiving standard treatment alone.” https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/astragalus
· May help manage type 2 diabetes by controlling blood sugar levels. In China, astragalus is the most commonly prescribed herb for managing diabetes.
· May improve kidney functioning by regulating the amount of protein found in urine.
· May help with side effects of chemotherapy. According to a clinical study, “people undergoing chemotherapy found that astragalus given by IV reduced nausea by 36%, vomiting by 50% and diarrhea by 59%.” (https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/astragalus)
